Richard Gilman, Veteran Theater Critic

Richard Gilman, who died Saturday at age 83, was a writer and professor at the Yale School of Drama. Ben Brantley of The New York Times writes, "Mr. Gilman was one of a breed of philosopher-critics... who came to prominence in the 1950s and 1960s.

In this archive interview from 1987, Gilman recounts his conversion from Judaism to Catholicism and then to atheism.
